breakfast-diner layout

Eindelijk nog eens gescrapt! Met dank aan Daphn├ę (http://dafkapin.blogspot.com/) want door al haar reislayouts te zien, kreeg ik er zelf ook weer zin in. Aangezien ik binnen 3 weken naar Kos vertrek, werd het dringend tijd om aan de vorige vakantie te beginnen scrappen. Dit is dus de eerste layout voor m'n Corfu-album. (Eigenlijk was ik aan een andere begonnen, maar ik had niet de juiste kleur cardstock om die af te werken, die volgt later dus nog wel.)

Arianne's blog candy!

http://stempelwerkstatt.blogspot.com/2008/08/blog-candy.html

You may think I always talk about great blog candy, but the stamp sheet Arianne 's giving away is really fabulous! I'm totally into Christmas cards at this moment, (maybe because the weather here in Belgium makes me think we're already December) and I'm sure I could make some gorgeous Christmas cards with these. The winner will be announced on 12th September, but please don't enter, so my chance to win is bigger :)

Tag You're It: Christmas in August


The first tag I've ever made, so I'm not really satisfied with the result. But I can learn out of it and I've used my Hero Arts stamps, that 've been laying in my drawers for about a year, for the first time! I'm sure I'll use them more often now.

Dutch Dare Challenge 10


Just a simple card for this great challenge, without any further comment!

Tilda & Co Challenge 32: Cold as Ice

http://magnoliachallengeblog.blogspot.com/2008/08/challenge-32-cold-as-ice.html
"Using the colours Blue & white Only "


Here's my second card for today. I used my Cuttlebug the first time for the snowflakes.
It's a simple card, but I'm happy with it.



A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 12

"We would love you to hide a message somewhere in your card."
I think this was a nice and original challenge, so I made a card for it. It was not so easy, but my mother (who is usually very critical) liked it, so I'm happy too. The text is a Dutch poem about newyear which I found on the internet.

Knotsgekke kaartendagen

Ik had er lang naar uitgekeken en vandaag kon ik eindelijk naar 's Hertogenbosch rijden voor de Knotsgekke kaartendagen. De cuttlebug stond bovenaan m'n verlanglijstje, maar ik heb ook nog allerlei andere spulletjes gekocht: stempels, brads, rickrack, tijdschrift, pins, nestabilities, etc.

First Challenge! Out of the Box - SCTL1


I have a love-hate relation with circle cards. I have seen so many beautiful ones from other cardmakers, but I hate to use circles myself . I came back to this blog to read the challenge several times, but only decided to make a card on the last day because the candy is so yummy!

Sarah Kay Challenge Week 4


Already the forth week of this great challenge blog, but only my first Sarah Kay card ever. I'm really happy with how it turned out, although I discovered I never have the right colour of cardstock, ribbon or pencil to math the patterned paper I want to use. Don't know if you also have that problem.
